Precious children of the living God, I declare freedom over you by the blood of Christ!
I have a message from heaven to your heart. You don’t need to be ashamed. Let go of what you did. Let go of what you said. Let go of what you didn’t do, or what you didn’t say. It’s in the past. What matters is the present, and you, holy and sanctified beloved of the Lord God Christ Almighty, have been made PURE.
Therefore, if anybody is in Christ, He is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
-II Corinthians 5:17
The devil is cunning and seeks to kill, steal and destroy. The devil wants to steal your joy and take you away from God because you’ve found treasure that he can’t have. You’ve found Christ: the only true gold and thing of true value in this entire universe. Brothers and sisters, sometimes it seems like people are on a personal mission to remind you of your wrongs and downfalls. Though it’s tempting to become bitter towards them, be encouraged that it is not they who speak, but the ruler of darkness that has taken root in their heart. I want to speak truth and life into your heart right now and tell you this is what is true: Christ has come, died and purified you. You are clean. Your sins are washed away! 2 Corinthians 5:17! You’re a NEW CREATION! You aren’t the person you were 50 years, 5 years, 5 months, weeks, hours, minutes or seconds ago. You are pure through JESUS! That’s the beauty of redemption. When we get to eternity, Papa is gonna look at us and see Jesus. He’s gonna look at us and say, “welcome home, my child! I’ve been longing and waiting for you!”. He’s not going to condemn us because we’ve been ransomed.
The Bible calls Jesus our mediator, advocate and defender so when satan accuses us and points the finger at every smudge on our record, Christ is our defense. Jesus is our faithful defender and He will stand up and say “NO. This child is innocent. This precious person’s punishment has been taken. See these scars? This was for them. They go free because I love them”.
Bottom line: You are pure in Christ! The accuser has no power over you.
Grace and peace,
